Supply Chain Management, B.A.

The BA in Supply Chain Management is designed to produce well-rounded graduates that have received a diverse education but can also perform a specific skill at a high level. Employers are well aware that the best employees are those who can think critically, learn quickly, problem solve, strategize, and operate with degrees of freedom within the business. However, their hiring needs at the entry-level are increasingly specialized - they need employees who can perform specific tasks reliably from day one.

Program Overview

The Supply Chain Management major is correspondingly designed to provide students with a comprehensive skill set in Supply Chain Management while also leaving ample room in their schedules for foundational courses imperative for their long-term success.

The ultimate goal of this major is to help students learn the skills necessary to secure an entry-level position in SCM, while also providing them with the educational background necessary for them to grow in their careers in the years to come. This major is therefore built on top of existing business curricula, where students will acquire a well-rounded knowledge base of business and business concepts. In tandem with this learning, students will also enroll in SCM-specific courses, where they will learn the skills necessary to work in Supply Chain management roles in today’s economy.

Finally, students will culminate their majors with a capstone course created in partnership with corporations, allowing them to gain hands-on experience in the type of work they will be required to perform in a professional setting and create a portfolio of work that can be shared with potential employers. 


Program Details

The program consists of 120 credits and will utilize the existing general education core (45 credits), the core business curriculum (45 credits), two existing courses already offered in the School of Business and Professional Studies to enhance the Supply Chain offering (Cost Accounting and Business Project Management – 6 credits), Supply Chain specific courses (18 credits), and the required internship (3 credits) and 3 credits (1 course) of free elective space.

Career Paths

As networks have continued to expand, Supply Chain Management (SCM) has become one of the most critical areas for companies with a need to move products around the globe. A total of 1.4 million new jobs in Supply Chain and Logistics were created from 2014-2018, and this growth is likely to continue as more and more companies recognize the importance of optimizing their supply chain. Because the importance of this role has grown so rapidly in recent years, the labor market is currently experiencing a dearth of Supply Chain professionals, and most of the people working in this area do not have a formal education in Supply Chain Management.
